Salmon conference in Landau – Protection and Management

A salmon conference will be held in Landau (Pfalz, Germany) from the 10th until 12th of May 2023.


The lectures will be translated simultaneously between German, English and French. The conference will take place at the Conference room of the University in Landau, Fortstraße 7.

Registration is now possible

Participation in the conference, including lunch, coffee and snacks, is free of charge. However, registration is still mandatory. Please transfer the fee for the excursion, the guided tour in the zoo and social dinner until 30.4.2023 via the proCampus webshop.

The number of participants for the excursion to Iffezheim is limited. Registration for the excursion will close as soon as enough participants have registered.

Venue: Fortstraße 7, 76829 Landau, RPTU Landau, Germany

The aim of the conference will be to make the salmon projects in the European Rhine catchment area and within Germany better known and to better link the involved persons. We have already planned lectures from several German federal states, from Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and Belgium. We look forward to many participants from management, science and the authorities. Of course, all other interested parties are also very welcome!

On May 10th we offer an excursion to the hydroelectric power station in Iffezheim with a visit of the fish pass. The number of participants is limited and a separate registration is required.

A project meeting of the „GeMoLaR“ project will take place on May 11th. Alternatively, a tour in Landau Zoo is offered by the zoo director during this time (in Engllish!). The zoo is only a few minutes‘ walk from the conference venue.

The conference dinner on May 11th will take place in the new Restaurant Erdmännl directly on the zoo grounds.
Participation in the conference, including lunch, coffee and snacks, is free of charge. For the supporting program (excursion, guided tour in the zoo and social dinner) costs are incurred.

The salmon is an iconic fish species in many European major river systems. Due to its anadromous migratory behavior and its high habitat requirements, it is an excellent indicator species for vital, ecologically well connected river systems. It is therefore particularly suitable as an „umbrella“ species: many species profit from its protection.
